One of the nicest botanical gardens I have been. Though not many flowers, there were lots of trees and even an elevated walk through the rainforest. Very neat place to visit if you are in Cairns.

Probably the best botanical garden we have ever seen, and as a bonus, it was absolutely free. I wish we had all day here, we had a plane to catch and only had a couple hours.
